Meet your artisans
Originally destined to be a farmer in his home-town of Bhaktapur, Rajesh never expected to become a button craftsman growing up. While Rajesh’s father urged him to take up the family farm it was his mother who saw the artistic skill he possesses. Rajesh’s light-touch and attention to detail gives MONK’s buttons and hooks their smooth, rounded finish and precise engravings. Rajesh jokes that his mother’s advice has shifted from his career to his home and that she is scouting Kathmandu to find him a bride. For now, Rajesh is happy to let his loyalties lie not with an individual but a team, specifically Manchester United. One day he hopes to watch his childhood favorites play a game live in Nepal.
